False Creek Rowing Club (FCRC) is a volunteer-run recreational rowing club located in Vanier Park on False Creek, right in beautiful downtown Vancouver. False Creek allows for up to 3 kilometres of rowing (one way!) and is easily accessible for anyone living near or around Vancouver. We offer lessons for beginners in the Spring and Summer, and year-round rowing for our members. If you are an experienced rower and want to drop in for a row to try us out, please contact us! FCRC is a small club that works hard to provide a warm, welcoming and safe environment for folks to come row and create community. In fact, our code of conduct reads as follows:
Be Safe – Be Welcoming – Be Respectful
We are proud of the people who are part of our family: they range from participants in our Community Rowing programs (which is supported by Rowing BC and Rowing Canada Aviron) to people like Andrea Proske who is representing Canada at the Tokyo Olympics in Canada’s Womens 8+ and our club at the Henley Royal Regatta and Tricia Smith, who is a member of the International Olympic Committee and a President of the Canadian Olympic Committee. Not everyone is fast, but we do ask that all those who are part of our community support the values in our code of conduct.
